    I'm looking to buy another truck. I currently have 99 Chevy HD2500 6.0 liter. It's very strong and will pull all of my equipment but the gas mileage is terrible. Thinking about going with a diesel truck. Can someone give me advice about diesel trucks and who has the best 4x4 diesel's? How are they on fuel to?

    If you plan on towing over 7K pounds regularly, diesel will give you better mileage. Otherwise, stick with gas. Lower buyin, same price per gallon of fuel in most cases.

    No one has the 'best' 4x4 diesel on the market. The domestics own this field and any one is a good solid choice. It ultimately comes down to your budget, and personal preference in what model YOU want, what options YOU're after and what YOU plan to do with it! Cheers.
